An early short story magazine, founded by Herman Umbstaetter, containing original appearances of among others, Jack London. Its success was aided by contests which awarded cash prizes to amateur contributors. Owing to its title, it is often thought to be primarily concerned with the occult, but it actually contains no greater percentage of this subject than many of its contemporaries.
